According to the awesome might of google, it can mean "big water", "the ocean", "the sea", or just be a name.

There's no real meaning behind this name. The origins of it were randomly generated, and I shortened it to this because I liked the spelling better.

Now, my other online persona was Prince Sancho III, now changed to The Abscondant Hobo (I think you can tell why I changed).

Prince Sancho III originates from Medieval: Total War. I was playing as Aragon. My first king, Sancho, was kind of crazy. He had one of the traits that's like, "Paints toenails blue and talks to walls" or something. The second king, Sancho III, was batshit-fucking insane. It was like, "Dances in moonbeams and paints his servants" or something. I was pretty boned after my two kings were just absolute shit. But there was hope! Prince Sancho III came of age, and was an incredible general! I massed an army for a massive expansion move, and right before I attacked, he was assassinated by some French bastard. So I picked the name to honor the memory of Prince Sancho III, since right after that I picked up a new FPS. I don't remember what it was, but I needed a handle.

But I recently changed to The Abscondant Hobo due to both my avatar and encouragement to pick a name that fits me more. It's fun listening to people in TF2 try to say abscondant, especially when they're pissed. Oh, extra note. My new iPod is now The Abscondant iPod.

The character is Kallen. She is the leader of a rebel group that fights against an opressing empire, and when her rebel group gets absorbed by a bigger organization, she becomes second-in-command. That said, everything's been explained in the vaguest way I could, for obvious reasons.

My nickname is Neko (means cat in japanese) since 2003 ... Nekoronde (means the action of a cat rolling on the floor) but mine is Nekohonde ^^
A friend called me Neko-sempai (sempai or senpai is a word for old people who are very respected) because he had respect for me ê_e don't know why exactly ... well ...
I took this nickname for fun because I wanted to change a bit my usual nickname ... but it's always the same since 2003 ... everybody calls me Neko ^^

Made my name when I was 7 for an RTS game called Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun. Was a war game, hence War Champ and 7.

I'll be 18 in May so I'll have been using this name for almost 11 years.

What does your name mean?

Post  SnakeInABox on Tue Jun 08, 2010 2:41 pm

Here we talk about our names. (Usernames). This should be a short lived thread, but an interesting one nonetheless.

I usually go by MarioMascot, but when I joined TWBB Forum I decided to give that name a rest.

I thought "What would be a witty and funny name? Hmmm... Well I like MGS.... So something about Snake... He has.. a box... Snake is in the box.... Snake in a box.... Like Jack in a box.... SnakeInABox"

And the legacy was born'd.

Post  Raya on Tue Jun 08, 2010 2:56 pm

Mine is a convoluted story.

Years ago in the distant past I started writing Digimon fanfiction (oh lordy). Since I had a Pokemon-based username at the time, I posted under the name of Rayamon. If I had a Digimon partner it would be a Gazimon, and since their Champion form was never revealed, I invented one and named it Rayamon because it was stripey.

Fast forward a bit later and I joined a Breath of Fire community. I dropped the 'mon' off the end and became Raya. Shortly after I added the surname 'Kaiserin' to it. The Kaiser Dragon is the final dragon form in BoF, and as Kaiserin is the feminine form of Kaiser, I used that instead. I can't actually remember why I added it *shrugs*

Then last year I joined here and dropped the Kaiserin part. I was tempted to add it to my sig, but I'm not so sure. In effect I've had this username for over 8 years, more if you count Rayamon. I'd say it's time for a change, but it's pretty much become who I am now Very Happy
